The furthest I've gone to is Hong Kong Ani-Com (and I'm from Canada) but that doesn't really count since I was there to visit family...

How far have you traveled? Do you travel alone to go to cons?

The furtherest away for me (so far) is Animazement in NC. I live in ATL about 430 miles away, give or take.

Although I hope to make Otakon in Baltimore this year.

Sadly not very far, Only to California and I live in Oklahoma, so halfway across the county. Nothing cool like Paris or anything.

I think the furthest I've traveled for a con was when I went to Anime North (Toronto) from where I lived in Florida. It was fun, but nothing super cool like traveling to Europe or Asia for a con. XD

Otakon and Katsucon are about 10 hours drives for me and they are the farthest cons I have been to.
I want to go a west coast con, but flights aren't cheap out of Canada.

SDCC is the farthest I've gone (I'm in KY). Totally worth it. Most of the time I go alone. I went to SDCC alone, and I am going to NYCC alone. I can sometimes get my friend to go with me too though if they are close to him.

My first con -- New York Anime Festival 2010 (I'm in FL). I dragged my sister along and had a fantastic experience. I still had Medallion Elite status, so we both got upgraded to First Class in our flights back and forth. We stayed in a hotel in Hoboken (traitors, I know LOL), got lost in West Village, watched The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya screening, and enjoyed ourselves at the K-On! booth.

WOW! Didn't know so many of you go so far for your cons! I thought our 6 hour drive to Otakon was far. Lol. I hope to have the funds to go cross country and overseas for a con one day.
